A Solid Waste Authority made up of North Georgia Counties
for the purpose of promoting safe solid waste handling through education, recycling and composting
The North Georgia Resource Management Authority was created
in 1994 by Towns, Union and Lumpkin Counties. This Authority allowed these counties to work regionally to handle existing
solid waste issues, to provide for solid waste to be properly and economically diverted from landfill waste streams, to explore
potential opportunities, to maximize resources and to expand existing programs.
In 1997 Banks County became a member
and in 2000 the Authority became the second regional Keep America Beautiful Affiliate in the State of Georgia under the name
"Keep Our Mountains Beautiful".
To date the Authority has brought its members over $1,800,000.00 in grant funds
and has won five awards.
The North Georgia Resource Management Authority began the first Regional Recycling Co-operative
in the state of Georgia in 2005. By working together as a region we are able to collect more materials and market them successfully.
